The City of Whitehorse holds two Women’s Forums annually on new and emerging issues of interest to women. The next Whitehorse Women’s Forum will cover healthy body happy mind.

We should all be able to not just survive life, but to thrive and enjoy it. This session will focus on building a person’s internal strengths and helping people recognise and connect with resources around them, such as friends and family, ensuring they are better able to deal with challenges and enjoy life as a whole. It will also cover a holistic approach to health and happiness.
